services for purchase tickets online are specified. It is possible to buy the tickets to the Louvre directly at the box office, but then you should be ready for the long wait as the museum is famous for its queues. However, the true connoisseurs of art would never consider it as a serious obstacle.
The visitors can brighten up the waiting by admiring the magnificent glass pyramid of the Louvre, located in the courtyard at the main entrance to the museum. Its view is particularly impressive with the background of an ancient palace in the evening, when all around is transformed by luxurious illumination.
